Top 5 Electric Cars Of The New Decade

The new decade has arrived, and it’s the perfect time to go green with a brand-new electric car.

While the upfront cost of an electric car is more than a traditional model, the amount of money consumers spend following the purchase of such a vehicle is significantly less given they will not have to visit the pump every week. But what cars are a must-purchase for the start of the new decade?

Tesla Model S

This Tesla might as well be a racecar. It has 518 horsepower, looks sleet and it is indeed fast. By looking at it, you’d never guess this Tesla is an all-electric vehicle. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, and its battery lasts up to 373 miles. This sporty Tesla also comes with all-wheel drive, making it perfect for icy conditions throughout the winter.

Price: Starts at $75,000

Ford Mustang Mach-E

Imagine a Ford Mustang, but larger and electric. That’s literally what this stallion is. Not only is the Mustang turning into a SUV, but it’s going to be one of the fastest electric vehicles as soon as it hits the road. The all-new Mustang, which will debut later this year, will have 459 horsepower under the hood, which will last for about 270 miles. The GT version of the Mach-E will be available within the year, and this one will feature an actual grille, whereas the standard model won’t have one so it can focus on performance-oriented consumers.

Price: Starts at $44,995

Jaguar I-PACE

This is the car everyone has been waiting for. Jaguar went all out, putting every piece of ingenuity they could into the I-PACE, and it paid off. The electric SUV has been a hit since it hit dealerships across the nation. It feature a driving range of 234 miles and fast-charging capabilities. The I-PACE comes with several driver assists, making the driving experience incredibly interactive. Though it’s an electric vehicle, it maintains 394 horsepower, making it the optimum eco-friendly choice to put into your garage.

Price: Starts at $69,850

BMW i3

This is quite the expensive electric ride considering it only lasts for 153 miles. However, it includes all of BMW’s advanced technology, making it a must-buy. This sedan has a gorgeous metallic look to it, featuring a beautiful accent on the side skirts. The BMW machine looks futuristic, and it isn’t too large, which means it’s perfect for parallel parking.

Price: Starts at $44,450

Porsche Taycan

This is not a toy. This is the real deal. Porsche just entered the future thanks to creation of the Taycan. It still features the same, gorgeous look of a Porsche. But this one is all-electric, and it lasts for about 200 miles for one charge. The Porsche goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds, and it tops out at 160 mph. Get ready to fly out east with the turbo option, too.
